Alumni: If you are interested in being paired up with other alumni for the Take 5 Challenge or participating in either of our committees, please email our Executive Director at Leadershipsrv@gmail.com. See below for more information: Graduate Speaker SeriesWe would like to have a committee of alumni to keep this successful program going. Therefore, we ask the committee to set up opportunities for alumni to connect, learn, and grow through exclusive monthly access to community leaders navigating our Community’s most pressing issues.  30th Anniversary EventWe want an alumni committee to help organize and plan a celebration event similar to the 25th Anniversary Event with the board’s direction. The Take 5 ChallengeAlumni are challenged/encouraged to be intentional about the community connections they make by Taking 5 Take five minutes in your month to (re)connect with others in the LSRV community.  It could be a phone call, a coffee, a walk, or an email.  The same five minutes you might use on Facebook or Instagram or snap chat or flossing.   The purpose is to spend time being there for each other in the Community, checking in about their current community projects/programs, goals, or challenges.   The intended outcome would be as Iron Sharpens Iron; we too can as a community sharpen each other.  We establish and broaden our circle of community support.  This effort to connect will continue to build Leadership San Ramon Valley and make it stronger than it is today.
